Toilet training a child with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) can often be more complicated than training a typically developing child.  Each of the three main components of autism – social impairments, communication deficits, and restricted interests/repetitive behaviors – can interfere with the process.  This workshop covers the methodologies of toilet training children on the autism spectrum. 

Parents and Caregivers will learn the following strategies:

  • Recognizing toileting readiness and prerequisite skills
  • Preparing needed materials
  • Conducting the various types of toilet training methods
  • Collecting and interpreting data
